I have some crow to eat, and I'll do so gladly...

So, several weeks back I, in so many words, expressed how "unimpressed" I was with one Greg Hardy... I talked about how I didn't see the intensity of his caricature translate to on-the-field success and all that jazz...

We'll, after seeing what he's done this last half of the season, I have to say how wrong I was.

I'll even go so far as to say that I've also been a little too critical of Charles Johnson and his salary in the past, and that he also has been playing at a level I never expected.

These two guys are playing lights out right now, and that is with a patchwork interior between them... Good for them, and I hope we are able to rely on them for several years to come.

So... Point and laugh... .gif bomb me... call me names... whatever...

But, this crow is delicious...

Go Panthers, and go Hardy and Johnson!

heh... I can see the headlines from the future... "Panthers continue to fug up opposing QBs with their Hardy Johnson!"

Yup I thought Alexander would replace him half way through the season.

He's really matured and become a leader. I really hope we can keep him around.

He really seems like he loves out fans, you shoulda seen him after the game.

There was a time I thought he wasn't going to pan out too.

Happy to be wrong.

I honestly think Alexander pushing him is why we're seeing him play like this. I think Alexander was close to taking that job and the Kraken exploded!

There have to have been others like me, that knew he had it. The guy did so much on the field. Special teams, Played UT and DE in some packages. He's all over the field yet because he only produced 3 sacks his first year and then I believe 3.5 sacks last year, folks thought he was a bust. Maybe it's because I didn't have high expectations on a 6th round pick. I was content with his production and the numbers really didn't tell the whole story to be honest. He has always had pressure on the QB. I'm glad he's doing like he is now, a lot of people were calling for his head for no real reason.

Even when he's not getting stats Hardy drives his man back every play collapsing the pocket...

I just hope he doesn't get complacent after we give him a 4/5 year contract.

I'm pretty sure the plan was to replace Hardy with Alexander but Hardy finally stepped it up and has continued to play at a high level. When he gives it all he's got he's one of the best.

Moose Johnson made a good point during the Chicago game where he said Hardy just needs to understand how good he can be. Perhaps he's buying in and just cutting loose.

Outside of his pass rush, he's become a force against the run whereas last season he was a liability. He's obviously put a lot of work in and it's great to see it pay off.
